Merry Christmas to you and yours, from me and mine.

I’m most thankful today that this year has brought us great spiritual growth and a more personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus.  This year we celebrate his birth, but also our loving relationship with him that has a new breath and life within our home and in our lives.  On this day it’s easy for me to reflect back over the last year and see how much closer we have become to our Lord, how much more time we’ve spent in His word.  Seeing my children thrive and take refuge in His loving grace is an amazing gift, today, and every day.
